Case Study

Globalization alters the traditional international legal order. It thus enters the do­main of law and legal scholarship. The legal globalization agenda is dominated by ad­ministrative law approaches to globalization, as globalization is accompanied by the acquisition of regulative powers by various actors beyond the state. This un­avoidably leads to the emergence of an administration beyond the state. The paper presents the evolution of a global administrative order as part of a more compre­hensive global legal order and of a Global Administrative Law (GAL) as part of a New Public Law. It is made up of three parts. The first part describes the notion, con­tent and features of the emerging global administrative order as part of a broader global legal order. The fragmented and heterarchical nature of the global ad­ministrative order is observed through the prism of four more specific global regulatory regimes of this order (environment, health, employment, financial sec­tor). A typology of administrative levels and functions in the global legal order is elaborated in the second part. And the third part assesses the typology elaborated in the context of a more general New Public Law and analyzes the paradigm of the New Administrative Law. It comes to the conclusion that modern administration is a cooperative and globally integrated administration.
